Not again! The cast exodus on Quentin Tarantino's freed-slave Western Django Unchained continues, as Kurt Russell has left the role of slave trainer Ace Woody during filming. He'll join several Django ditchers who were once cast in or linked to the movie, including Sacha Baron Cohen, Kevin Costner, Jonah Hill, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Will Smith. If those people want to make their own movie, we would watch that one, too.
